The Very Definition Of Blair's Law

Tim Blair’s aphorism defines “the ongoing process by which the world’s multiple idiocies are becoming one giant, useless force.”

In the Jurassic world of the dinosaur media, that definition exquisitely summarizes the proposal by CBS to outsource its news gathering operation to CNN, thus bringing together the news division which brought you the biggest trainwreck moment of 2004 (not to mention 1968!) with the news division that, prior to 2003, brought you long-running coverage of Iraq personally approved by Saddam Hussein and his apparatchiks.

(And note the story was broken by the New York Times, which isn’t in the best of health in its dotage, either.)
